Attorney Howard Lotven

Howard Lotven

Attorney At Law

I’ve been a solo practitioner since day one. After earning my J.D. from the UMKC School of Law in 1984, I opened my own local firm in order to help clients in the area. Since then, I’ve dedicated my career to providing residents of Kansas City—and throughout Missouri—with dedicated legal counsel. Whether you need defense against a DUI charge or help navigating a child custody dispute, I’m ready to fight for you.
